MAC RiRi Woo

MAC RiRi Woo might be currently sold out, but never fear, it’s coming back in June!

RiRi Woo is the brainchild of Rihanna. It’s a new shade (not the same as Ruby Woo) but also a cool-toned matte red. Its has a “retro-matte” finish, they say.

I’ve done some hand and lip comparisons below of RiRi Woo and Ruby Woo and you will see they aren’t the same shade of red. Both are so awesome though!

As you can see they are very similar but not quite the same. Ruby Woo is a bit brighter and lighter than RiRi Woo. The finish looks a bit different on the lips also.

RiRi Woo looks a bit deeper and smoother, more like a velvety matte. Ruby Woo looks slightly more like a tomato red next to RiRi Woo, but it’s still very cool-toned. It has a bit more of a sheen than RiRi Woo.

Overall: Well it’s really easy for me to say I love it because I love red lipstick! This is a really great shade, great finish and super flattering. Matte lipsticks do tend to dry my lips out rather quickly so if I am going to wear them for a long time, I usually put some kind of balm underneath to help with moisture.

Availability: It will be back in June!

Pricing: $15.00.

Did you snag one or will you be snagging one in June?
